[movies]ScienceCasts: An Astronomer's Dilemma
Stars are bright, but their planets are not, which makes planet hunting difficult. NASA's ultraviolet telescope GALEX may be providing a solution.

[movies]ScienceCasts: Stellar Extremophiles
A NASA space telescope named "GALEX" has found stars forming in extreme galactic environments, places where researchers thought stars should not be. The finding could affect astronomy much as the discovery of microbial extremophiles affected biology in the 1970s.

[image]Interacting Galaxy Pair Arp 65 - NASA/JPL-Caltech/M. L. Giroux (East Tennessee State University)
High resolution images from NASA's Spitzer infrared telescope and GALEX ultraviolet telescope show the difference in the distribution of young and old stars in the Arp 65 pair of interacting galaxies. In the short-wavelength infrared at 3.6 microns (first image), cool old stars are bright, so the beautiful grand design spiral patterns in the old stellar disks are visible. In contrast, at longer infrared wavelengths, at 8 microns, bright clumps of young stars are detected (second image)...

[image]GALEX Ultraviolet Image of Cartwheel Galaxy
The Cartwheel Galaxy is one of the brightest ultraviolet energy sources in the local Universe. Recently-observed features include concentric rings rippling out from the impact area in a series of star formation waves, ending in the outermost ring. Previously, scientists believed the ring marked the outermost edge of the galaxy, but the latest Galaxy Evolution Explorer observations detect a faint disk, not visible in this image, that extends to twice the diameter of the ring...

[image]Multipanel Images of Whirlpool Galaxy (M51)
A composite image of M51, also known as the Whirlpool Galaxy, shows a majestic spiral galaxy. Chandra finds point-like X-ray sources (purple) that are black holes and neutron stars in binary star systems, along with a diffuse glow of hot gas. Data from Hubble (green) and Spitzer (red) both highlight long lanes of stars and gas laced with dust. A view of M51 with GALEX shows hot, young stars that produce lots of ultraviolet energy (blue)...

Tour of M51. MPEG Hubble's image of M51, also known as the Whirlpool Galaxy, shows the majestic spiral arms that are actually long lanes of stars and gas laced with dust. The infrared image from Spitzer also reveals stars and the glow from clouds of interstellar dust. The dust consists mainly of a variety of carbon-based organic molecules. An image from the GALEX mission gives the view of M51 in ultraviolet light...

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. -- A worker leans over the fairing covering half of the Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX) to make adjustments. The spacecraft is already mated to the Pegasus launch vehicle. After encapsulation, the GALEX/Pegasus will be transported to Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and mated to the L-1011 about four days before launch. A new launch date has not been determined.
